As part of research to develop improved techniques for assigning officers according to the psychological requirements of different kinds of officer jobs, an attitude questionnaire is administered to junior officers comprising the experimental sample. At the request of DCSPER, a preliminary analysis was made of statements made in the 'Comments' section of questionnaire. Statements made by 150 officers were categorized and examined in relation both to intention to remain in the Army and to area of job assignment--combat, technical, or administrative. Of the total sample, 50 percent indicated intention to leave the service. The percentage was much higher for technical officers (74%) than for combat (30%) or administrative (46%) officers. Concern over inadequate use of abilities and training was expressed by 48 percent, over half of whom intended to leave the service. 23% expressed a desire that individual preferences be considered in making officer assignments. About 23 percent indicated that junior officer pay was felt to be low in comparison with civilian pay. Some officers made more than one reference to these reasons for concern, indicating that these matters were of considerable importance to the individual.
